A remote book on building a successful virtual culture from USA TODAY and WALL STREET JOURNAL bestselling author, Robert Glazer!

Close to twenty-five percent of professionals today work remotely in some capacity (and even more since the start of the pandemic). There are a lot of benefits to companies who employ a virtual workforce: cost savings on office space and other overhead, improved job performance, better employee morale, and a broader pool of talent from which to recruit. However, there are also challenges: communication limitations, social isolation, and managing distractions, among others.

In his leadership management book, How to Make Virtual Teams Work, Robert Glazer, bestselling author of Elevate, taps into his decade of experience managing a virtual office—and winning twenty "best places to work" awards—while providing leaders with a step-by-step playbook on how to intentionally build a remote workforce and culture by developing core values that provide guidance in hiring talent who works well remotely, creating comprehensive onboarding plans, using technology to communicate and connect with remote employees, and more. This goes way beyond a typical HR strategy book. By employing these specific organizational behavior strategies, leaders can build a remote environment that thrives and make it one of their key competitive advantages.
